Vivid signs deal with Canada-based Sydney Stone to distribute Matrix laminators

Vivid Sydney Stone

Vivid Laminating Technologies - a designer and manufacturer of laminating systems - has recently signed an exclusive distribution deal with Canada’s Sydney Stone for Vivid's Matrix single sided laminating systems.  Leicestershire-based Vivid recently attended Print World Show in Toronto with Sydney Stone to demonstrate the Matrix and a new modular feeding system.

Martin Evans, Managing Director of Vivid, comments, “We are delighted to confirm our new partnership with Sydney Stone. The Matrix is a great system for single sided lamination and the response we received from the Print World Show attendees was superb - which confirms the demand for a system like the Matrix.

“We’re really excited to be partnering with the Sydney Stone team. They have a rich history within the Print Finishing Business and we are confident the Matrix will have the same success in Canada, that it has in Europe, where it is a market leader.”

The Matrix range has 3 models  - the MX-370, the MX-530 & MX-700. Vivid has also recently launched a retrofit feeder for the MX-530, the UK’s first modular laminating system feeder.

Having taken orders at the show, Sydney Stone’s sales director Michael Steele, adds, “Not since 2004 have we sold this many units of a particular system directly from the show floor. The Matrix fills a definite need in the marketplace and its affordability and ease of use makes it easy for business owners to see how much it will add to their bottom line”.
